for some reason, this fabric reminds me of being in grade school during Halloween....I love it so much.
Being inspired by Gwen Marston, I decided to let this " become"as it evolved...no patterns or preconceived ways it should look. I started with the phrase "Happy Halloween." I drew those free-hand, scanned and then printed as a mirror image. That got traced to my freezer paper and then ironed onto the fabric. THis is so easy to do when the husb and son are watching football. Then, I put the project away for awhile.
One inspired Saturday,I began to play with the fabric.....fussy cutting here and there. I really just played with making different shapes. I eventually ended up with a number of pieces for a table topper. I pinned all the pieces to my background fabric and took it to my friendship group meeting for DMQG and received positive feedback. I was excited to continue.
I added fusible webbing (Seam2Seam) and then appliqued all the pieces to a piece of fabric. My sewing machine foot went crazy on me during this time and I had to order another one....work got busy....project put away for awhile.......
Finally finished appliquing the pieces to the background fabric. I then added a two inch border of Denyse Schmidt Hope Valley (basketweave, I believe)....
Here is the finished project before quilting
This has been so much fun creating....now on to quilting!
